    Personnel: Joe Morris (guitar).
    Recording information: Sharon, MA (05/10/2000).
    Over the course of two decades and over 20 albums, Joe Morris elucidated his own entire school of guitar playing. His virtuoso technique, entirely absent of gimmickry or effects, is marked with a deep appreciation of melody, and stunning rhythmic counterpoint. A highly palpable sense of searching for a deeper understanding of living within the natural world is always in evidence. Morris's standard modus operandi is the electric Les Paul, played in trio, quartet or the occasional duo. On this appropriately titled album, Morris sat down solo with an acoustic steel-string to weave an awe-inspiring web of 10 fully improvised compositions. His love of West African string music is well evident in his repeating of intricate lines, and the gradual unfolding of a melodic ideal. The recording itself is impeccable, and this rare solo setting fully allows for the jaw-dropping experience of hearing Morris's deeply probing musical mind--not to mention his devastating technique--in action.

    Down Beat (11/01, pp.63,65) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...The effect of the acoustic makes him sound even more distinctive....Morris' work seems to be a natural reflection of the way he hears..."
